President Joe Biden has been forced to endure another weekend of humiliation in American sports circles.
Chants of “F*** Joe Biden” broke out after NASCAR’s Xfinity Series race at Talladega Speedway in Alabama on Saturday, Breitbart reported. The raucous chant has been heard at multiple sporting events nationwide over the last several weeks.
According to Breitbart, one reporter suggested race fans were cheering for the winner of that day’s event, Brandon Brown. But there was no mistaking what the crowd was actually saying. Take a look at video shared by Breitbart:

Biden’s latest PR nightmare
The heckling comes as the president and his team are in the midst of their latest PR nightmare. Even President Donald Trump didn’t get this much bad attention during his first year in office.
For Biden, everything from the U.S.–Mexico border to the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan has been a disaster. Now, Americans aren’t letting him off the hook for it.
Since sporting events started letting fans back in to spectate in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the mood has been decidedly anti-Biden, and that includes at college football games, MLB match-ups, and even boxing fights, as Breitbart notes.
“Some of the first games the chant appeared at included the Coastal Carolina-University of Kansas game on Sept. 10, the Alabama State-Auburn game, Virginia Tech game, and Ole Miss-Austin Peay State game on Sept. 11,” Breitbart reported Sunday. “The chant also rose at pro football games.”

He can’t come back from this
Even in the liberal stronghold of New York City, fans could be heard cursing the president during a recent Yankees–Mets contest.
As sports fans make their voices heard, Biden is approaching the end of his first year in the White House. Already in his short time in office, however, he seems to have gone from a reasonably popular figure to a national villain.
The president’s image is in the dirt, as even The New York Times admits, and there seems to be little he can do to recover. Democrats facing re-election in 2022 will no doubt be doing their best to distance themselves from the Oval Office.
